The 2019 AIGA Salt Lake City Student Portfolio Review was held Saturday, April 27th at the Adobe Campus in Lehi. This was an opportunity for students to gain valuable advice, insight, and industry information from some local professional designers and agencies. Two guest speakers, Justin Mezzell and Rogie King from Super Team Deluxe gave an inspiring and insightful lecture on what it takes to be a success in the industry.
Thirteen students from Salt Lake Community College Visual Art & Design Department – Graphic Design & Communications Portfolio Development class presented their portfolios.
SLCC GD&C students presenting: Kristin Adams, Sabrina Dean-Perry, Allison Fisher, Kayden Groves, Lisa Hall, Maja Keefer, Alex Israel Martinez, Heleman Martinez, Blake Peterson, Jessi Sauer, Kesia Timoteo, Hali Vanderburg, and Jazz (Albert) Vitale.
Many other GD&C students attended as observers. This was especially important for beginning design students to see competition from students attending the University of Utah, Weber State University, Utah Valley University, and Utah State University.
Both Assistant Professor Virag White, instructor of the Portfolio Development class, and Associate Professor Kerry Gonzáles, GD&C Spec Rep, attended the event to give their support to these hardworking and talented students. Both were (and are always) extremely proud of their students and wish them the best of luck in their careers.
Wonderful work everyone!
